Human Rights and Social Justice Conference

University of Winnipeg Global College

From February 23 to 25, 2007, the University of Winnipeg Global College and its partnering organizations hosted a remarkable assembly of national and international academics, government representatives, NGO leaders, witnesses and advocates in the human rights arena to frame a proactive approach to education and awareness.With the active participation of an informed and engaged society, the conference set out to develop and sustain a global human rights strategy for change to encourage interactive dialogue, to shape policy, affect international agreements and increase awareness of three major human rights issues that demand notice and representation: war-affected children, gender rights and the rights of indigenous people.
